ELA K-2 Summary of Alignment & Usability

The instructional materials reviewed for Calvert Kindergarten, Grade 1, and Grade 2 partially meet expectations for alignment. Materials meet expectations for text quality, complexity, and alignment to the standards, and most questions and tasks are grounded in evidence.  There is partial evidence of the materials providing coherently sequenced questions and tasks to support students in developing literacy skills. Culminating tasks do not meet the criteria for requiring students to read, discuss, analyze, and write about texts. Speaking and listening activities may need to be supported with extensions to dive deeper into the text and materials do not meet expectations for providing teaching protocols and modeling academic language. Materials provide partial support for the acquisition of increasingly sophisticated foundational skills.
